FORT WORTH, Texas - Ryan Newman's No. 39 U.S. Army Chevrolet will pay tribute to the men and women of the Army Reserve in the Samsung Mobile 500 NASCAR Sprint Cup race April 9, at Texas Motor Speedway.

The paint scheme on the hood and rear-quarter panel of Newman's car will showcase Army Reserve, which is the Federal Reserve force of the U.S. Army.

Founded in 1908, Reserve soldiers receive the same training as active-duty soldiers and are offered the opportunity to serve near home until they are needed to deploy. Reserve soldiers combine civilian experience with military training to provide specialized skills for military missions around the world.

"This is another excellent opportunity for our high-profile U.S. Army NASCAR team to educate young Americans about the many career options available in the U.S. Army," said Col. Derik Crotts, director of Strategic Marketing, Communications and Outreach, U.S. Army Accessions Command. "For 103 years now, our Army Reserve soldiers have been integral in preserving freedom and maintaining a strong nation in both their military and civilian roles."

Ryan Newman, who is enjoying one of his best starts in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, is looking for continued success in the U.S. Army Reserve Chevrolet at the 1.5-mile Texas track.

"It's an honor and inspiration for our U.S. Army Racing team to recognize the dedicated Reserve soldiers," said Newman. "It's our goal to contend for the win and produce plenty of exposure for the U.S. Army Reserve. Of course, the coolest tribute would be to drive the Army Reserve Chevrolet to Victory Lane."
